Best Answer

Specialty coffee drinks, like those sold at Starbucks, are high in caffeine, which gives energy, and perks drinkers up. They are also filling. So, if all you have is one drink, and replace a meal with it, you will not gain weight. Also, it is trendy to drink high-end coffee drinks. Keep in mind that the number of calories in coffee depends on the type of coffee drink. Espressos have 5.4 calories and black coffee possibly 10 or less. Its the lattes, cappaucinos and hot chocolates that have a lot of calories.

because Starbucks is the shizzit and caffeine is addicting to many people. i, for one, have to have caffeine everyday or else i feel sick and have a major headache. some people just make it part of their daily routine and form an habitual habit out of the act of going to the Starbucks and ordering their favorite drink. also, some people have the money to spend to drink over priced coffee drinks everyday. if you got it, flaunt it. there is really nothing wrong with drinking Starbucks everyday if you have the resources to pay for it and enjoy the affects that it has on you.
